    Icon14 Oscilloscope or DD

    I would like to know what's the best, precise and/or easiest option to fine tune my car audio?
    My options are one of these(please state why your experienced choice):

    1- The SMD DD1: SMD Distortion Detector DD-1

    2- Or the Oscilloscope: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ARM-DSO-Nano...item589d75d68d


    Thank You.

    The DD1 is going to be easier, and from most accounts I've seen is accurate when compared to an o-scope.

    There are youtube videos that show you how to set gain via both methods... check them out.

    Re: Oscilloscope or DD

    If you want to limit yourself to only setting amplifier gains then a DD-1 seems to be the best tool for that job. An oscilloscope can do 101 things if you choose to learn it. I've never seen that oscilloscope you linked, and there's a popular cheaper one called DSO Nano that's known to be good for setting gains.
